By: Michael D. Davis. This book presents a pictorial tour of western Kentucky’s surface coal mines during their heyday in the 1950s through 1980s. Concentrating on walking draglines, stripping shovels and loading shovels, the superb photographs show these great machines at work in what was the most productive coal mining region of North America at the time while giving an overview of their owners’ operations.
